Hydrogen Sulphide Incidents in Northeastern BC

The Globe and Mail reports, WorkSafe BC recorded 24 incidents involving potentially deadly hydrogen sulphide here in the province’s oil patch region, in the four year period beginning in 2004.

No fatalities resulted from the incidents but, in one case, in January of 2006, a truck driver drove a loaded tanker into a ditch, after being knocked out by the gas.

The newspaper says reports for the period were obtained through a freedom of information request. They show most of the incidents resulted in short-term breathing problems and/or eye irritation for victims but were deemed to require no further WorkSafe investigation.
